Poem - Screams Echoed

The poem “Screams Echoed” was inspired by thoughts about toxic mirrors.  While they are desired, the results are damning to both the requester and the one supplying feedback.  The need to be seen in a certain way is poisoned by the uncharitable thoughts of others.


Screams Echoed

Mirrors stand to illustrate
the scope of self then displayed
reactions twisted to reflect
in the face of other folks

a funhouse without laughs
screams echoes against walls
while the reflections twist and turn
stating horror as consequence

this ruling stated without hope
damning all in parallel
some asking to be judged
while others offer cruel insight

poison spread from the taint
an image felt within the heart
provided with ill intent
at request of supplicants.
